    Question

    In sincerely hope to sell or trade most of the young D. ordensis I have early next year when danger of frost is over. You raise the age old question "How does one obtain one of these plants?" I ended up germinating some from seed I recieved from England last year in order to get another clone. It shouldn't be that hard. I know most of you would agree.

    These plants promise to be robust and fast growing! I'm very pleased that a few are quarter sized in a matter of only 2 months.

    Homer, any thoughts on germinating petiolaris group seed?
    Did you place in a hot place? How long before germination?

    I hope to germinate some seed soon and some tips would be great!

    D. paradoxa and ordensis = close to 2 weeks. They have been consistently fast to germinate. Some of the others take longer... several weeks to a month or more.

    As Homer noted, you can frequently get germinations in a few weeks. However some of the seeds will refuse to sprout for months. I had a D. broomensis germinate after 6 months...

    In other words, don't be quick to give up!!

    Homer, your plants are stunning. A real eye-candy treat! The petiolaris complex has to be some of the most beautiful 'dews. It is a shame they are SO hard to come by...and usually expensive when you do.

    Maybe in a few years with more people growing and propagating, eventually they will be as common as spatulata.

    Thanks for the photos. That was fun!
